"In June of this year, about 5 months ago now, the headrest airbag in my car went off for no reason and hit me hard in the back of the head. I immediately developed a terrible headache
that lasted for three days before I finally went to see a doctor at the urgent care center. She took X-rays and told me that I had an injury to my neck that was causing the headache,
and prescribed muscle relaxers and pain medication. This did help with the pain, but I still never felt like my neck was right.
It was a couple of months later that I started to experience dizziness and sometimes loss of balance. Then one day I remember feeling really off, just achy and generally bad all day. That day I had the first attack of extreme vertigo. I was in the bathroom and my husband came running in because I was SCREAMING. It felt like I was in a box that someone was shaking and turning all different directions. Finally I was able to lay flat on the floor and began to feel better, and I remember thinking, “I need a chiropractor.”
Well I just live on Google, so the first thing I did was look up vertigo, and I found that a lot of other people said that chiropractic was the best thing. Just to be sure though, I went back to the doctor who had seen me right after the airbag incident, and she said that it could be caused by any number of things and probably had to do with my inner ear, so she gave me some more meds to stop dizziness. Hah! That didn’t work! So I found myself at Dr. Bartell’s office.
When Dr. Bartell saw the X-rays of my neck, he looked at them in a whole different way than the other doctor. He was able to show me how those problems were causing pressure on the nerves in my neck and explain how they could be causing the vertigo, the headaches, the achiness, pretty much all of my symptoms. I began to feel better very quickly after beginning my care with him, at first coming three times a week, and gradually reducing the number of visits.
Now I’ve been getting adjusted about three months. No more vertigo! All of the other symptoms are much better, too, although I’m not quite one hundred per cent yet. Every once in a while I feel just a little bit dizzy, but now I can feel where my neck is out, and as soon as I get my adjustment it usually feels better immediately. That’s how I know that the schedule he recommends is the right way and I need to keep my appointments. I can really tell if I miss! Chiropractic is the only thing that helped me."

"My first experience with a chiropractor was actually with my mother-in-law back in 1993. She used to walk leaning badly to one side as though one leg was much shorter than the other, and she’d been walking that way all the time I’d known her. I was with her in the grocery store one day, when a man standing behind us in the checkout line excused himself to her and said, “You’ve had this problem for at least 20 or 25 years, haven’t you?” She answered that she had, and wanted to know why he asked. He said, “Because I can help you with this problem.” The gentleman was a chiropractor from New Zealand, who had been practicing already for 50 years. In 3 months my mother-in-law was straight as an arrow, and walking fine.
Not long after that I hurt my back getting out of the car, and I tell you I couldn’t even stand up. They were going to call the ambulance to take me to the hospital, but I refused. “Just get me home, I told them, and I’ll call the chiropractor. He’ll help me.” I had had previous back surgeries and I did not want to see any other kind of doctor. Later that day my mother-in-law drove me to the office of the same chiropractor that helped her. It was a Saturday, and he came in the office to take care of me, and he was able to help me too.
I was so glad for those previous experiences in 2003, as I sat in the neurosurgeon’s office discussing my neck. At that time I was dealing with two different situations. I had a severe vascular condition in my right leg, for which I had already refused surgery and amputation of my foot, and this terrible pain in my neck, for which I was taking medication and having injections with little relief. I was talking to the neurosurgeon about my neck just then, and he said, “Look, this is my specialty, and I’m telling you that you are not going to have this surgery on your neck. You’re going to go see this doctor. He is my personal chiropractor. I see him for an adjustment every week, and he will be able to help you.” Not only did he help me with my neck, which I have still not had surgery on 10 years later, but in addition to adjustments he made recommendations that allowed me to restore the blood flow in my leg and I still have healthy function in a foot that I was told would have to be amputated.
So now in 2013 I am seeing Dr. Bartell. Again I had an issue with my back after reaching for something and later pushing furniture. It was excruciating, and the orthopedist gave me oxycodone, which did not help at all. I suffered for a couple of weeks, and he told me that he did not want me going to the chiropractor. Finally I told him, “You don’t decide what kind of doctor I should see to help me. I decide that myself, and I am going to the chiropractor. “ Once again, I am feeling back to normal. It is frightening to me how many people just listen to medical advice that can drastically change their lives with unnecessary drugs and surgery, instead of going where their problem could be addressed without those measures.
My life was changed because two men, the chiropractor in the grocery store, and later the neurosurgeon I was referred to, were brave enough to speak up for what they believed was the right thing. Because I can think for myself and not just blindly follow directions, I have been able to avoid measures that would have severely diminished my quality of life, and each time turned to chiropractic instead."

"When I first started coming here I was having awful headaches…I mean, it was just so bad. Almost daily. The pain was just terrible, almost like a migraine. Since coming
here I have not had a single headache like that. Maybe once a month I get a headache, but it’s nowhere near that kind of pain, I almost don’t even think about it.
Another problem I had been having was that almost every time I ate a meal the food would come back up on me to the point of vomiting. I was very surprised that after I started getting adjusted this problem improved also. Of course now I understand how nerve interference in the spine can affect my digestive system.
I had a car accident about three years ago, but I didn’t think there was anything wrong with me. Now I realize that the severe headaches had really started after that accident. I also had some pain in my neck all the time, especially from keeping my head turned to one side. But as these symptoms got worse, I kept telling myself that it was because my job was stressful, and I’m sure that aggravated everything. I never thought I might have injured my neck.
I didn’t really consider going to a chiropractor, but my fiancé was really pushing me to see Dr. Bartell, and the headaches were so terrible, so I decided to see if getting adjustments could help. I’m so glad I listened to him!
Right now I almost never have headaches, and my neck doesn’t bother me nearly as much. I’m able to eat without any problems most of the time. I know the problems in my spine are still there, but over time they will be corrected. Usually after I get adjusted I feel great, but I know I need to come back! It’s amazing how much an injury I didn’t even think I had was affecting my life."

"My son Julius got adjusted the first time when he was almost one month old. I had made the appointment with Dr. Bartell for myself, and I was not sure at all that I wanted him to touch
my baby. He was so tiny and fragile. I’m pretty sure I asked Dr. Bartell if he was certain he knew what he was doing. Now I’m so glad I let him adjust Julius.
I feel like I had been worried about Julius from the moment he was born. At his birth, my doctor was not in the room and the nurse was by herself for a few minutes while they called him. Afterwards I kept wondering if she had done something wrong. My baby cried all the time. He was always constipated and colicky. He wasn’t sleeping well. He never seemed to be happy or comfortable, and it seemed there was nothing I could do.
Since he got adjusted Julius is doing great! He had a normal bowel movement almost immediately, and has not been constipated again. He is not fussy anymore and he’s sleeping all night. His growth and weight and everything have been perfect and he is a normal happy baby now. Chiropractic care was the best choice for both of us!"

I’ve been seeing Dr. Bartell for 2 months now. I decided to start my chiropractic care when I was in so much pain that I could barley sleep at night and had to keep on taking Advil and melatonin every night. When we went over my first x-rays I was shocked.

Dr. Bartell is a seasoned veteran who has a very holistic approach to healing problems and uses many different techniques and suggests exercises to improve the structure of the spine.

Dr. Bartell took me from having neck/back pain on a daily basis to rarely experiencing pain at all. His adjustments continue to help me stay in optimum health and would recommend him to anyone with pain issues or looking for general wellness.
- Kendall G.
I had gone to Dr. Bartell 28 years ago for a debilitating stiff neck caused by a pinched nerve. In a short time I was cured and I remained pain free all these years. I recently had shoulder pain and started visiting again, and again my should pain disappeared. I highly recommend him for anyone experiencing any pain or discomfort. Expect miracles.
- Debbie G.
After dealing with terrible headaches and trying to treat myself with over the counter medication for so long, I was introduced to Dr. Bartell. Not only did he help me with my pain, but most importantly he help my son with his constant nose bleeds (which no medicine doctor we seen had any real answers for) He helped me realize that chiropractic is more then just for back pain and that the real medicine is within our own body's. Thank you so much to you and your amazing staff for genuinely caring about us.

Have been to Dr. Bar tell before several years ago when working in Fl, and returned because he practices wellness with chiropractic, and encourages getting to root cause of pain and inflammation, done by ongoing adjustments along with diet and exercise.
